I think that was a fair question, but whatever. Now as far as pros only being paid out in cash, that's BS, I've seen plenty of sanctioned tournies that pay out ams in cash, so again...fair question. Thanks for the clarifications that didn't act like I'm a money grubbin' whore. In addition, I'm a teacher...doing it for the money...not in my wheelhouse. Can't wait to see everyone there in a few months. Maybe i can win a trophy for once.
Oh well...I was probably one of the first people to sign up since I did it about 15 minutes after Rideout posted the tourney on here...so did it matter what I was playing for no, just curious...let's do what I tell my students, don't judge a book by it's cover and be courteous and answer questions without assuming the worst. While we're all doing that, I'll do the other thing I tell my students...ignore rude people.
Again...whatever, good thing I love this game.
i thought it was a totally legitimate question, if i want to play disc golf just for fun i will go play a round somewhere. when it comes to tournament time, it is alot more than just fun that motivates me to play. there is no point in playing in a tournament if there isnt any prizes/cash/players pack that is up for grabs. the only exception is fundraiser tournaments. and when i am talking about tournaments i am talking about PDGA sanctioned events.
so dont feel bad about asking about prizes and stuff.
